Chris Hemsworth has sent beachgoers in Byron Bay into a spin after stripping off following a quick surf sesh.

The 34-year-old actor showed off the infamous muscles that earned him the role of Thor as he got out of the water and peeled off his wetsuit.

As he made the most of the warm winter weather in his hometown, his hot body was on clear display for everyone to enjoy #soznotsoz.

His abs were all onlookers could see as he enjoyed a quick rinse, making sure to wash the salt from his signature blonde locks.

The dad-of-three then dried off beside his car and changed into his jeans, but remained shirtless as he packed up from the beach, giving everyone a full flash of that incredible six pack.

We can’t deal.

While his wife Elsa — who Chris once told Be wasn’t a fan of his buff bod — didn’t join him, he looked visibly delighted with his efforts that no doubt would have been a breeze for the fitness buff.

“She doesn’t care,” he told us last year. “She’s wildly unimpressed much to my dismay.”

Chris is a lifelong surfing fan and is even friends with Australian pro Mick Fanning, who famously once punched a shark whilst out on the water. 

The Australian actor’s love for the water showed as he looked natural and relaxed as he headed home to Elsa and their three kids, who split their time between Australia and LA.
